A fantastic place to stop if visiting Lille or southern Belgium. Very easily reached from motorways with the aid of a satnav. We weren't quite sure that we had come to the right place, as it's tucked away a little, but look out for the word MUSEE painted on a brick wall and entry doors covered in bright stickers, and...

I have to say that I'm really not much of an art person, but my study abroad program offered a trip to La Piscine so I figured that I'd check it out. This venue is obviously very unique and pretty cool. There is also a nice garden outside. While I honestly don't remember much of the art, I am glad... More

As a student I can say I'm tired of going to musea, but this one is the most gorgeous I've ever seen. The old swimming pool vibe is still there, but there's so much different works of art that make it worth a visit.

This was expensive to visit (9euros) compared with other museums and galleries in Lille. It was an interesting venue but little information was given about this. The art work may be to someones taste but unfortunately not ours.

This was my second visit and is the most magnificent transformation of La Piscine to a Musee. The building is wonderful and the exhibits exciting and enchanting. Beautiful pictures, sculpture and fabrics. I could have gone round and round. The piscine is amazingly transformed and nostalgic. My favourite museum on a visit to Lille

Imagine: this "pool" was constructed for public sanitation purposes back in the 30s, yet it is fit for a palace. It is one of the most incredible public amenities I've ever seen - a snapshot of a time when once-rich cities like Roubaix built things to last, and, thankfully, to show off!

What a fantastic museum. A stunning ambience. A mix of old and new artefacts. The current exhibitions were well crafted and interesting. Ceramics were a feature in both new and permanent exhibition spaces. There is a wide variety of mediums including textiles, painting, sculpture, Jewellery and mixed media. Well worth visiting for a step back into a different world. I... More

This museum blew me away. Great atmosphere and great art, mainly from late 19th to early 20th century. Also textiles as a tribute to Roubaix heritage. There was also a really nice temporary exhibition on Nathalie Lete, who gave the fairy tale of red riding hood a wild spin. Pop-art meets horror, love it! I think this museum has enough... More

Just a quick metro ride from the centre of Lille, the town a Roubaix doesn't have a lot to offer but is worth a little detour for the museum La Piscine. It is a beautiful art nouveau pool that has been renovated and transformed into a museum. Permanent and temporary collections are nice, but I was there mainly to see... More

We stayed in Lille as a family for 2 nights and I am so glad that we made the trip out of town for La Piscine. A great space with a perfect balance of contemporary and classical art. We visited the Nathalie Lete exhibition while we were there, which was great. The Meert restaurant is also fantastic. Parking right outside... More
